F.W. Abel was born in the city of New York, long ago enough to have not even been a teenager at the beginning of the Civil War Centennial. He escaped from Fordham University with a degree in psychology into the U.S. Army. The army had him function as a psychologist for a while, until he…

“Sitting on my sofa 8 months pregnant with baby #3, I was perusing my email updates from my favorite deal websites (as I eagerly did every morning) thinking what can I score a deal on today, when a light bulb went off… Continue

Breastfeeding was on of those taboo topics that people just didn’t talk about when I was pregnant with my first child. As a new mom, I knew right away that I wanted to try breastfeeding my baby. My first experience with breastfeeding happened when my twin sisters were born. I remember seeing my mom breastfeeding and knew that my body… Continue

So yesterday I was going thru J myster's drawers and boxing up his 6-9 and 9-12 month stuff that he has grown out of. We have been lucky to receive most of his cloths from friends. I have boxes of cloths for him up to 4 years old. It is great to have friends who have boys! I did discover we had no size 4 shoes for him and he has pretty much grown out of 3's. Another thing that made me tear up a bit is Sunday J myster turned 20 months!! 20 MONTHS!! How did this happen? How did my baby get so big… Continue

Whole story here..
Part of becoming a mommy is having to think for someone other than yourself. You have to think what's best for your child, how a decision will affect them now and in the future. I had to make a VERY hard (for both myself and Jaliyah) decision recently, which also contributed to my short absence.
One of the decisions, that I am sure many of us have faced, is whether you and your SO should… Continue

So Wednesday the north country of AZ was hit hard by severe thunderstorms and 27 tornado warnings. Four that touched down where I live, and one that was just 6 miles from my house heading right for us. One tornado knocked a freight train off the tracks and picked up and moved diesels off the road! It made national headlines here
. So glad we were spared!...… Continue

Remember the Star Wars scene when Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia and Chewbacca were all trapped in the Death Star trash compactor and the walls were closing in on them? That impending doom device was reenacted in countless Saturday morning cartoons and as a child, it was my biggest nightmare. I thought (and still do) that the slowly-getting-crushed-between-two-walls scenario was (is) the… Continue

I’ve always liked the month of February: my birthday falls on the 8th day of the month, it’s short- bringing us a tad closer to springtime, then there’s the celebration of the Hallmark holiday Valentine’s Day (although I’ve never been much of a heart person). Today, I like February even more because we get to introduce you to Karyn Parsons in celebration of “Black History Month.” What we love about Karyn (a.k.a. Hilary Banks from Fresh Prince of Bel Air) is that she reminds us that we must… Continue

What I imagine goes on in my 9-month-old's mind:
Hm, lots of toys, lots of toys.
Let's see there's a round thing, a hard thing, and a - what the? - what's this squishy thing? And there's a...
I think -- I think -- I just spotted something I'm not supposed to touch. It has a wire and a keyboard and a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor. Yep, yep, I know these things. Let's fire up this bad boy and...

My grandmother was a breast cancer survivor. She had a mastectomy at a time when I was too young to even understand what that meant. I am now 38 and acutely aware of what it means as we honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My grandmother outlived her cancer, dying of natural causes, and I know many of you who are taking care of your elders or dear friends are praying for the same outcome.
Not too long ago I was introduced to a few remarkable women who created the TNBC foundation in… Continue
